Events calendar

MIcompany is often present at big events, but we organize our own events at the office as well. Below you will find an events calendar. Are you interested in a job as a working student or data scientist, at these events you will have plenty opportunities to get to know us better.

 

Due to consequences of the coronavirus, all physical events have been postponed until further notice. We are keeping a close eye on the guidelines of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu, RIVM). Due to the uncertain nature of virus we cannot yet say anything about when the physical events will resume. Expect an update here on our website when we know more. However, in the meantime we are hosting great online events.

  • Friday 8: New Years Event 2021
New Years Event 2021

Friday, January 8th, MIcompany will host their annual New Year’s Drink: an event for all highly talented beta-students.

Our goal is to show and inspire ambitious students how they can pursue a career within the field of Artificial Intelligence.

Are you interested to learn how to implement state-of-the-art AI architectures from an AI engineer perspective or how to build advanced Machine Learning models from a Data Science perspective? If yes, this is a perfect opportunity for you!


What to expect?

The event will take place in a virtual setting. Spoiler alert: it will be different from the Zoom meeting you’ve been participating in over the past year.

The topics we will tackle vary from introducing you to our DNA research on Astmah to demystifying what it entails to be an AI engineer.

We will start at 17:00 sharp and will wrap up the event at around 19:30. Get to know the people and feel free to ask all your questions about AI during the Q&A session at the end of the event.

 

Sign up below to receive an invite through mail including the Zoom details.

The planned MIcompany New Years Event 2021 will be on the 8th of January 2021.

Why work at MIcompany?
Merlijn van Breugel (Data Scientist):

“When I was younger, the term nerd was kind of an insult. Today, I think being a nerd is pretty cool. It means you know a lot about a particular field.
At MIcompany, we embrace it. We want to know all about Data Science and we use this knowledge to transform companies.
In my own work as a Data Scientist, I work primarily on our Doing Good with Data initiative. There we do fundamental medical research on children’s lung diseases like Asthma, by applying Machine Learning on DNA data.
Indeed, this is a totally different ball game than our regular projects, but we like a challenge. And above all, it is very rewarding to contribute to such a relevant and benign topic.”

Wendelien (Data Scientist):

“As a data scientist at MIcompany I get to combine my passion for the nerdier things in life with a fast track to personal development. Whether it is by teaching at MIacademy, deep-diving in the latest tech developments or learning to sail in Greece, my curiosity is constantly being fed. Most importantly though, are my amazing colleagues who are always up for a beer and who constantly inspire me to develop myself not only as a data scientist, but also as a leader.”

Floris (Project Leader):
“Working at MIcompany means helping large companies within and outside of The Netherlands with data and analytics. I personally specialise in the technology required to bring our modelling solutions to real impact, from building analytical applications to integrating models in client IT infrastructure. This makes for a perfect match between my background in computer science and our work in the rapidly changing field of data analytics. Furthermore, I really enjoy teaching in our internal MIacademy, trying to add a bit more technology to anyone’s knowledge!”
